EDITOR’S EDITOR’S NOTE NOTE
While the intention was to take over reality in a rational faithful way, it was with an almost neurotic toughness, because this was ruled by a fear of seeing the unknown, so one thus stripped away, at the same time, the poetic, symbolic and magical dimension of creation and the surrounding world
By Estelle Arielle Bouchet
“You have to dive into the unknown to find the new ” was the battle cry for Baudelaire in the well mannered bourgeois Nineteenth Century All painters or artists who were committed to the Abstract view aimed at rebirth with this Paradise Lost which corresponded to the very nature of the poetic topos.
Art & Abstraction From Modernism to Abstraction,
It is similar in the purity of the constructions on blank backgrounds by the painter Mondrian in the 40s: silence embodied in the colour white, itself symbolizing a window onto the breath of the imagination and mouthfuls of oxygen from an emptiness that is healthy and calming, taking us to a perfectly structured geometric space
These representations, because of their mystery and their origins that are so remote, leave enormous room for poetry Whether it’s the funerary art of the Pharaohs with its hieroglyphics or the cave paintings or the early writings of Sumer in Mesopotamia, there is always the same mystery and an invitation to dream, similar to what happens in the Abstract art of the Twentieth Century This latter vigorously rejects the figurative academicism of the Nineteenth Century that never stopped reproducing, with a romantic monotony, relative reality with its still lifes, portraits and landscapes
Whether it be a work by Miro or by Kandinsky or the dark and mysterious atmosphere of a film by Alfred Hitchcock lit up by the presence of a star like Grace Kelly at the peak of her sublime goddess beauty, it is the same dialectic of a mystery in search of a transcendent fugitive moment, but to which we can devote a lifetime
Wassily Kandinsky (1866 1944) Rigide et courbé, signed with monogram and dated '35' (lower left) oil and sand on canvas 114 x 162 4 cm Executed in Paris, December 1935 Courtesy Christies com Lyrical abstraction from Wassily Kandisky
The search for the Sublime is inextricably linked to the abstract approach This metaphysical form which follows just after the original form, whether in design like the wonderful black and white sketches of René Gruau from Christian Dior featuring an ideal of refined elegance that suggested more than it imposed and gave birth to the “New Look”, the name given by Caramel Snow, editor of the celebrated Harper’s Bazaar But make no mistake, under this apparent simplicity; Christian Dior once again made Paris, like a phoenix from the ashes, the world capital of fashion just after the Second World War.
This obsessively figurative vision reflects human confinement that cuts us off from the original myth of Narcissus, which gives everyone the opportunity to be in a permanent state of metamorphosis.
All what we see or seem is but a dream within a dream” Edgar Allan Poe
he concept of Abstract Art is not confined to being a sophisticated movement of our time or some intellectual affectation for a circle of insiders, but rather relates to a pictorial tradition that is brutal, vernacular and instinctive, dating back to the beginning of time: rock painting without any kind of human representation whatsoever or like the Gate of Babylon which highlights a pictorial dialectic made up of symbols and animals or the ancient frescoes of the Lascaux caves
On the same subject of global success: at the 1959 American Toy Fair in New York, Ruth Handler presented the first Barbie The doll woman exactly corresponded to the aesthetic canons of the pin ups of the 50s. The fatal carnal beauty of the sex symbols of the 50s makes themselves seen, embodying life and its physical appetites. America, the country that rescued Europe from horror and destruction, often had the lead in World War II hero figures Its all time stars had no rivals and this period invented the feminine ideal: platinum blond hair, wasp waists, wide hips and large breasts From Rita Hayworth to Ava Gardner, from Liz Taylor as Cleopatra at her peak, through Grace Kelly who radiated the glow of her very aristocratic more discreet beauty as far as Europe
It’s true genius manifests itself in its metamorphic role with its detachable pendants, this versatile collar can be cleverly adapted and remodelled in six different ways.
André Courrèges later took up these themes again in his minimalist dresses in the 60s which were highly graphic The first, although this is still subject to controversy, was Mary Quant from Great Britain with her creation of the mini skirt which sold by thousands in her shop in the King’s Road in 1965 Mary Quant represents a perfect example of that era when mechanization was at the service of creativity: faced with a voracious enormous demand, the answer was by infinitely producing and reproducing and to use this to make the industrial tools available through Taylorism In this Modernist era, America reigns supreme and imposes its laws
The 1950's was also a relevant source of inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels's latest High Jewellery collection, ‘Chevron Mystérieux’. Conceived by its CEO and Art Director Nicolas Bos and his talented team, ‘Chevron Mystérieux’ is a modern echo of the Mystery Set technique an illustrious and innovative technique developed by the Maison back in 1933.

This Modernist and Post Modernist movement, two sides of the same coin, embodies everything and its opposite: the frantic sensuality of this post war period mingled with invention and the development of the applied arts, pre announcing the bulimic consumption of the 60s From the phantasmagorical elegance of Kenneth Lane, inventing delirious jewellery for well bred American WASPs while drawing his inspiration from a bestiary of animals or going back to a new Ancient Egyptian purity with his grand Cleopatra like wrist pieces A world where Hollywood has its importance and television has already announced the warning signs of “all virtual” which today occupies all the space and punctuates all exchanges of all kinds
the breath of the Fifties
This emblematic Collection offers a 50's vision of its new creation illustrated by the drawings of Jérémie Fischer A mixture of purity and craft this masterpiece necklace is composed of three pear cut diamonds in a trilogy of 31 24, 12.18 and 12.07 carats surrounded by a crimp of intense emeralds, sapphires and diamonds; it’s sustained by a pure and geometrical structure highly inspired by the 50's abstract spirit; it is utterly captivating!
Displaying an ensemble of precious stones, this necklace, which can be metamorphosed into a bracelet, illustrates the Maison’s own aesthetic in the 1960 1970s 59 sapphires showcase their intense blue and delicate hues
The Heritage collection features vintage pieces of Jewelry and High Jewelry created by the Maison between the 1920s and 1990s and offered for sale today
As part of this event which brings together masterpieces from various disciplines each year, Van Cleef & Arpels will spotlight two pieces, one vintage and one contemporary These carefully selected creations reflect the world of Van Cleef & Arpels as well as its exceptional savoir faire.

Two independent movements
Moralmoda Magazine Timepieces | 22
Being a mechanical automaton, the energy required to operate the movements is manually generated with a carbon coated steel winding key
The two independent movements have two barrels situated in the cockpit and their mainsprings can be wound up with the key through the two exhaust pipes For the highest hearing experience, the musical movement stands on columns fitted to a wooden resonance box underneath Serving beyond its main purpose of amplifying the organic sound, the wooden pedestal covered with a black lacquered composite gives the impression of the asphalt running underneath the tires See all models at REUGE com

Internal forces, such as overleveraged investors that entered the market in its best times thinking it was a money making heaven, now face the reality of the market's drawbacks and may have to dump inventory to meet leverage obligations
At the peak of the luxury watch market in early 2022, Rolex stainless steel models traded at 3x their listed prices; meanwhile, Patek Philippe Nautilus models traded at more than 5x their listed prices."
The luxury watch market post pandemic has seen a lot of self proclaimed gurus that lack knowledge of the global market's economic state, which may be one of the many reasons for overinflated prices
The tax system's loopholes put some alternative asset classes in danger of inflated prices and may be one of the causes of a market's correction The tax system is one of many that add fuel to the fire; however, it is not as impactful as the amount of wealth low interest rates and cryptocurrencies have caused.
Patek Philippe Tiffany & Co Nautilus
By Omar Al Bataineh, Finance and Watch Editor Founder of www watchaholics net
External forces such as global stock markets that have shattered the confidence of any retail investor that has suffered declines of not less than 20% YTD conservatively, and can go up to 80% if it was a highly speculative portfolio Another external force is the so called transitory inflation that hasn’t yet shown any sign of abidance even after the FED's interest rate hikes, and that’s a massive concern to speculators that face a risk of the FED increasing interest rate hikes as a benchmark
on’t blindly follow someone, rather follow the market's whispers and try to hear what it is telling you The more inexperienced individuals enter any market, the more it is exposed to overinflated prices.
At the peak of the luxury watch market in early 2022, Rolex stainless steel models traded at 3x their listed prices; meanwhile, Patek Philippe Nautilus models traded at more than 5x their listed prices
When interest rates are low, investors get the chance to speculate more on risky asset classes that generate abnormal returns However, interest rates can’t stay low forever or else it will cause inflation, mispriced assets, and many other compli cations The luxury watch, like any other alternative asset class post COVID 19 that has gone through abnormal, unjustified growths, must come back to its mean prices, if not lower, due to current economic and political complications In addition to the above, the gray market has shown signs of being very manipulative in terms of some charitable auctions, or maybe even call it the free publicly announced tax write off
The luxury watch market, being an alternative asset class that gets influenced by traditional assets, has started to correct, but the secondary market hasn’t been looking great. Markets are usually affected by both external and internal forces

2019, with two collec tions that highlight the masterful savoir faire of both brands the 110 year anniversary Twin Turbo Furious edition watch and the EpicX Chrono The companies rewards us already with an all new line of exclusive co branded products after launching recently Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon in 2020, that reflected in the most impressive and detailed way the heart of Bugatti Chiron car, revealing an irresistible surprise for car enthusiasts and any watch lover; the floating movement recreated in 578 components Bugatti Chiron's heart.
Furthermore, when the chronograph is stopped and reset, the seconds' hands cannot jump backwards as the spring that propels them backwards hasn't gathered sufficient energy To manage this very complex and unique chronograph, calibre JCFM09 is
Jean Bugatti (above) was a Renaissance man, versed in all knowledge, he was a racer, an engineer, an automotive designer, and a business leader He had inherited the qualities of all sides of his family, which wasn't short on geniuses. His artistic mind came from his grandfather, furniture designer and craftsman Carlo Bugatti His sense of design was shared with his uncle, sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti And his instinctive understanding of all things automotive he took from his father, Ettore Bugatti As the eldest son of founder Ettore Bugatti, born in 1909, the same year when Ettore set up his new company in Molsheim, Alsace, in north eastern France he went beyond this incredible heritage and created automobiles and engines in his own, unique way At the helm of the company his father founded at age 27, he took charge of developing street legal cars and race cars that left a mark on their era, such as the Type 50 series
At that point, in the oval medallion at 6 o'clock, a disc with gilded numerals has instantly jumped from 00 to 01 This 30 minute counter is made of sapphire in order not to dim the view on the pair of tourbillons. This separate second with double retrograde hands and a digital jumping minute disc is a completely unique feature.
Jacob & Co. and Bugatti Automobiles.'s joint passion for watchmaking excellence, debuted in 2019, as the two limit breaking brands joined forces in a quest for hyper luxury performance in an unprecedented collaboration between car manufacturer Bugatti's team with the watch manufacturer team of Jacob&Co They astounded at Baselworld
A delicate energy management
With Jean Bugatti, the Swiss watchmaker is celebrating a man who is remembered as an iconic carmaker for his revolutionary design Yet its powerful manual winding movement Calibre JCFM09 features a pair of one minute flying tourbillons. A high frequency, double retro grade chronograph with split hands and a digital jumping 30min counter, pairs the iconic Bugatti design with Jacob & Co's art of watch making It exists in two collections of 57 pieces each
When the start/stop pusher is activated, the first hand starts moving from 0 to 10 As it reaches 10, it jumps backwards to 0 and starts its course anew while the other hand has jumped forward, from 00 to 01 As time advances, the first retrograde hand keeps moving up like the rpms on a dash board counter and back as the gears change The other one soon reaches 60, at which point it also jumps backwards to 00
A revolutionary chronograph

A unique challenge
A peripheral vision of time
Jacob & Co. donated a one off timepiece to the yearly Luisaviaroma x Unicef charity gala After a heated fight between buyers, the watch was auctioned off for 450,000€, 50% above the retail price of its regular version
The openworked components are highly polished and beveled They stand out against the backdrop of a circular grained, all blacked out main plate A forest of springs, levers, clutches and impressive mirror polished bridges create a dense technical environment that draws the eye and arouses the viewer's curiosity. In that respect, as in many others, the Jean Bugatti would impress the very person whose name and legacy this timepiece celebrates. See also Jacobandco.com. By N. Ahmet

Frequency: 36’000 vph (5 Hz)
To conclude that Jean Bugatti may just be Jacob & Co.'s most demanding watchmaking project ever is not an overstatement Even for the creator of uber complications such as the Astronomia, Twin Turbo Fast & Furious or Bugatti Chiron, the development and manufacturing of calibre JCFM09 presented a series of intense challenges The thinness of many components is so extreme, the pressure
The dial's center is occupied by the chronograph hands, so where are the hours and minutes hands? Pointing inwards, located on the extreme rim of the dial, two short, red hands provide that essential indication As they run on the same scale, and cross paths as the minute pointer catches up with the hour pointer, adjustment in their elevation allows for smooth passage every hour
Calibre JCFM09 is made of a total of 470 components This unusually high number is a direct consequence of the movement's dual structure On the same main plate, two different and interconnected systems co exist One is the time keeping part, with a dedicated barrel, gear train, twin tourbillons, all of which drive the peripheral display The other is the chronograph part. It possesses its own barrel, stacked on top of the other to share access to hand winding operated by the crown. This barrel is linked to a dedicated regulating organ, with a short hairspring, allowing the smooth balance wheel to oscillate at 36'000 beats per hour, or 5 Hz. It sits in between the flying tourbillons When the elaborate system of clutches are engaged by the pushers and coordinated by the column wheel, the balance wheel immediately reaches its optimal amplitude and frequency to drive the chronograph hands with maximum precision
But the complexity of the chronograph operations is even higher than that A star shaped wheel drives the instantaneous jump of the 30 minute counter disc Overall, the graphic impression left by calibre JCFM09 is impressive
Finishings: Black Chromium, Circular grained Mainplate; Polished and Beveled Bridges; Openworked, Beveled and Horizontal grained Levers and Clutches; Gold Plated, Openworked Balance wheel Bridge; Sand blasted Barrels. Mirror polished, Beveled, EB shaped Tourbillon Cages Retail price: $250,000 each version
Jacob & Co has been deeply involved in philanthropy for over fifteen years
Movement Power Reserve: 48 Hours
An inner beauty of Calibre JCFM09
Held at La Certosa di San Giacomo in Capri on July 30th, it welcomed celebrities such as Spike Lee, Jamie Foxx, Jared Leto, Ansel Elgort and star of the show J.Lo. It featured many lots gifted by many brands and artists But Jacob & Co upped the ante by offering a one off timepiece from its flagship Opera Godfather collection

they're under so high and so frequent, the management of forces and energy within the movement so complex, it can at times have felt almost unfeasible This sophistication is immediately visible as one flips the Jean Bugatti to take a look at the caseback and the movement

Frequency: 21’600 vph
fitted with a double set of regulating organs A small balance wheel is located at the back of the movement It's dedicated to the chronograph operation, as is a separate barrel Together, they allow a two hour power reserve of high accuracy measurement Coordinated by a column wheel of extremely fine construction, this chronograph has been designed to offer the smoothest running possible and the best haptic return The strength required to engage the pushers is minimal
Twin tourbillons a dual brain
A unique piece Opera Godfather by Jacob & Co goes through the roof at a charity auction in Capri
Hours and minute hands are directly linked to the movement's time operating parts, regulated by a pair of one minute tourbillons, running at 21'600 vp hand operating side by side. Their timing information may differ slightly, as is the purpose of twin tourbillons. A spring clutch located between them averages out their running and provides the movement with unified, chronometrically enhanced timekeeping.

AB: We lovingly did a complete renovation of a small 6 storey building built in the middle of the 19th century A complete restructuring that allowed for a project with a simple initial question:
AB: In 1991, the contemporary art market collapsed after a serious financial crisis in France. At the same time, my father sold a hotel he owned in Paris and decided to set up another business. I joined his project in 1992 without knowing that hotel management would become my profession
CM: Alain, tell me how the Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais was born
CM: And why did you name the hotel?
AB: To create a place invested by the spirit of 18th century France, a time when women in France, under Louis XV, took power over men, over the arts and literature, is to create a place for women Attention to detail has been the key and included even the small bouquet of roses in the rooms, which adds a delicate touch.
The Relais St Germain Carrefour de l'Odéon, the Ducs de Saint Simon, there were perhaps three of us who intuited, if not "invented", without knowing it, this concept of "boutique hotel" whose name means nothing
Antiques and furnishing fabrics are subtly combined to tell a story, to create an atmosphere What the Italians call ambiente, an untranslatable term that the word "ambience" fails to describe The ambition to be the opposite of decoration This is the secret of the hotel.
For me, luxury is a compendium of small details That's why today I'm introducing you to the Caron de Beaumarchais hotel in Paris. A small private 3 star hotel that is a little gem for its charm. A hotel with keys like in the old days and where they don't ask for your credit card when you enter but when you leave as they used to do in the past In short, it is an oasis in the hotel scene.
A hotel that is not quite a hotel at all, without reception, with a small capacity and an authentic decor was new in 1992, and even almost non existent in Paris.
to the culture and history of your chosen country It means to be surprised To enjoy. To be welcomed. Disconnection is the key to the place we will create
It is unusual to write an article about hotels that are not super luxury. We see reports in magazines about 5 to 7 star hotels, but sometimes luxury is not all the gold that glitters
Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais: a little secret in Paris
AB: Beaumarchais, whose real name was Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, author of The Marriage of Figaro, lived a few steps from the hotel, at 47 rue Vieille du Temple We have associated his name with the hotel The way is open to create a place of total disconnection, of dream and fantasy inhabited by the spirit of the 18th century, echoing the extraordinary personality of Caron de Beaumarchais.

To create a place of fantasy where antiques, period furniture, paintings, musical instruments, chandeliers and fabrics on the walls combine to create a surprise "Is this a hotel?" That's the question you hear every day from passers by who stop, amazed. It remains the most beautiful of compliments The "concept" works.
CM: What was the process like?
As luck would have it, we acquired a disused hotel in the Marais district, a hotel that had to close because the owner could not renovate it It was a wonderful opportunity, in the historic heart of Paris, to create a new place
"What is a hotel? More specifically, "What kind of hotel can you imagine in the historic centre of Paris that is frequented by foreigners and not by businessmen? Better yet, imagine yourself as a traveller abroad Moreover, ask yourself the simplest question, answer the definition of the words "travel" and "holiday" By definition, a holiday means leaving your everyday life behind, freeing yourself from it, disconnecting. It also means opening up
CM: And the decoration?

With minimal use of colour and proposing full black or pure white looks, include, extra large jumpsuits sculpted in silk velvet, asymmetrical sharply cut sweater in alligator or long white tunic in embroidered patent leather, coat dress in lamé jeans
Stéphane Rolland masters voluptuousness through exquisite Fall 2022 Couture show that he dedicates to French singer Monique Andrée Serf (1930 1997) known as Barbara
Roseberry's approach is the opposite, exploring the concept of a woman who lives passionately and wears her heart on her sleeve, as symbolically depicted by the final look, where an asymmetrical bodice in red silk reveals the left side of the breast area, that is adorned with a finely crafted red lacquered anatomical heart pendant with rhinestones, held by a necklace, Schiaparelli com By N Ahmet.

The Fall 2022 couture show’s grandiosity is not just felt in the venue but in the acoustic atmosphere with church bells Yes the long awaited Paris Fashion Week begins and closes to the sound of church bells, and in a good way! For Daniel Rosenberg, it was a matter of childhood memories As he confessed in a recent interview, the church is, "a family business," as he calls it Roseberry did choose another way of living, but don’t expect to find nun like discipline in cuts like the couture style that Elsa Schiaparelli’s contemporary Coco Chanel was famous for.
Daniel Roseberry, as Artistic Director at Maison Schiaparelli, masters the surrealist expression that the founder proposed almost 100 years ago when the Maison was founded in Paris. The dramatic Fall 2022 Couture presentation was moved from its intimate salons at 21, Place Vendôme, to a bigger stage in the city, which seems appropriate now for a brand that is worn by some of the world's biggest artists at the world's greatest stages.
Anna jump at the end to give him and the atelier a standing ovation, because this show is as much a celebration of the so calle petite mains who followed Creative Director to receive acknowledgement at the end of the show on a warm Roman night The previous show held at Valentino’s gilded salons on the Place Vendôme, the intimacy of the show (in contrast to past couture shows staged in Venice) Masterful colour blocking is one of Valentinos signature looks this time crowned by Irish haute couture miliner's feather hats and pieces which would undeniably thrill one of his most loyal collectors and late muse Isabella Blow, see more on Valentino com
NATOMY OF COUTURE Spring Haute Couture show by Pierpaolo Piccioli for Maison Valentino questioned the feminine figure as a socio anthropological construct The Fall Couture collection continues to go further back to the roots of this discourse and Piccioli aptly named new collection The Beginning
Appreciating how the couture is a way to celebrate body and individual, Piccioli adapts the most iconic part of Rome the Spanis Steps to present the most sophisticated and dreamy looks which made American Vogue editor

So when I started to expand it to Saudi Arabia, Turkey, France, the United Kingdom, and even India, all the prestigious communities showed interest, especially that I was connecting people from all around the world with each other
Please elaborate on how Lebanon is spreading its international reach abroad from Lebanon to the world.
I believe that being "unique" is the key And when you are authentic and deliver it withIt touches the audience's heart I learned from the legendary Elie Saab, whom I consider my influence and motto, that you can represent your country whenever you are across the globe Be known for your work. It's all about your hard work and you keep on raising your country's name high
Interview: ABED EL RAHMAN NAAMANI
I was able to gather a community from a 10452 KM2 country, Lebanon, including Lebanon's most prestigious high end society It became like a popular club gathering.
When and how was Mag Lebanon founded?
Founded in 2014, MagLebanon is a Beirut based microblogging platform that reflects the lifestyle of the Middle East and the region
Maglebanon’s audience is all from the elite, top notch society from the Middle East and even Europe
What is the main target audience and scoop of your publication?
How are you, as an entrepreneur, building an international community that shares the same lifestyle and interests?
It's all about sharing an authentic real life rather than faking it, like if I was traveling somewhere, I would share the places I shop or go to, and definitely my audience shares the same interest with me, and it happens that we all know each other It's all a small community, and you need to know what your community needs I even introduce to my audience new shops, restaurants, and places they can check out
Founded in 2014, MagLebanon is a Beirut based microblogging platform dedicated to sharing a panorama of different lifestyles and experiences With over 203K organic followers from the Middle East's prestigious high end society, the electronic page resembled a private hub that gathered people virtually The page covers different topics ranging from fashion, lifestyle, and celebrity news to prestigious events and galas, as well as work on charitable projects
The audience includes celebrities, public figures, and socialites They all check the publication to know what is out and about, and check out the latest in refined fashion, lifestyle, business, and social news. The main target is to gather all these people that share the same interest together.
Abed El Rahman Naamani is a Lebanese enthusiast who is aiming high to pursue his dreams and achieve them. With a BA in Communication Arts & Media from the Lebanese American University and expertise in communication and the PR field, he founded Maglebanon in 2014 during his last semester at LAU With his dedication and passion, he is currently building a solid foundation for his name, magazine, and career path.
It all started when I was in my last semester at university where I graduated in communication/media from LAU, and my friends used to tell me that I am super sociable and I am so into the social and lifestyle From here, the idea started to gather the society into one community, and this is how Maglebanon started It was the first that shared the news that fast and in simplicity
The international reach is present by covering all the international events and also by connecting the international community with the Middle East, I became like the hub This sort of connection can get them an investor to expand their scope of business to the Middle East
For example, if you are in Monaco for the F1, all of these groups will see where the best place is to spend the day and even party together. It's almost like lobbying for them to socialize, especially if you share who's there, such as an entrepreneur is spotted somewhere Yes, even business and social people are like celebrities, and the latest trend of promoting your business is by your very own self.

Born in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, surrounded by culture and design Rykiel practically grew up in the atelier of her maternal grandmother, the late designer Sonia Rykiel, whose vision and designs liberated women through her legendary label During these early years, Lola also spent time in London, alongside her paternal grandmother Joan Burstein, founder and creator of the iconic department store Browns
Educated with a formal dance education, Lola moved to New York to rejoin the house of Sonia Rykiel in 2012 as the head of communications for the North American division, cementing her grandmother’s empowering message to a new generation of women across the globe
Combining her lessons both in the art and business of fashion, Lola began her career at the house of Sonia Rykiel, inspired by two leading women, whose personal and powerful forms of self expression have transformed the industry
Following six years of successes at Sonia Rykiel, Lola was inspired to use her experience to support other brands and launched Le Chocolat Noir, a New York based agency offering strategic brand consulting, media planning and event conception named after her grandmother and mother’s favorite indulgence In 2019, Lola founded Pompom Paris, her own label which pays homage to her grandmother Sonia’s famed “velours de luxe” as well as her time dancing and love of fitness. The collection will officially unveil its second season in January of the coming year. Lola Burstein Rykiel currently lives in Paris with her husband and newborn daughter
